Dump Cake

Grandma Olson used to put out a lot of desserts. I found this one in her recipe box. How do I say this? I was totally disappointed. I haven’t decided if I screwed up or not? Maybe I overbaked it. Well, I know that’s true. I kind of forgot it in the oven. The other problem is I used canned peaches. A good fresh peach dripping with juice is a joy, but I never see those any more.

Basically you start with a 9 by 13 inch pan. Literally dump a 28 ounce can of fruit, juice and all into the pan. As I said, I used peaches but you can use any fruit or pie filling. On top, sprinkle a dry cake mix. I always use Pillsbury or Betty Crocker. No matter what it calls for I use white or yellow.

I know admitting to a cake mix habit is not good, but I like cake mix. And, after years of trying different brands, those 2 are my favorite. Don’t tell anyone, but I like brownie mix as well. Shoot me!

Sorry, I digressed again. Next cut up a cube and a half of butter and distribute over cake. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 to 50 minutes.

I think it should be a little goopier than it was. G said it was fab with ice cream on top. I’m not a huge fan of ice cream on cake. It gets too soggy.

*****From the Recipe Box:

I’m going to try this again, but I’m reserving judgement.

and remember: I love lists. Start thinking of your own, i.e., what are your top 10 favorite movies, top 10 songs, etc. You get the picture. Big kiss, Lynn
